Is it Time to Freak Out?
Is it Time to Freak Out? No... Never!
For believers in Jesus Christ (Yeshua) it is never time to freak out. Why you ask. Because we serve a God that is BIGGER than the universe and He holds us in the center of His hand (John 10:28).
Bible Reading Today: John 10; John 14; Psalm 100; Luke 21 and Proverbs 3:5-8.
Back in the year 2000 there was only a couple of us sharing prophecy updates or connecting the headlines with what the Bible had to say about current events of that day. Of course we were pioneers in online prophecy getting the word out. Over the last 6 years there has been an explosion of voices online now that are warning people. Some are Biblical in their presentation, others are not and these tend to peddler fear, sensationalism and speculation. There are so many voices out there I have considered leaving the space because I don't want to add to the chatter. But every time I consider backing away someone contacts me or comments that their grateful I'm there providing a unique perspective, serving them and The Lord.
There is a spirit of fear and worry sweeping through the Christian communities. Some of this is caused because believers listen to the fear peddlers way too much and do not balance what they are consuming online with enough personal Bible study and prayer. You have to be very careful who you listen to these days and if what they say does not match up with scripture, then stop listening to them!
Today I was contacted by someone I know online and he was very upset, concerned and worried about all the bad news he is hearing. We spent some time discussing the issue of fear vs. trust. The conclusion was that, as Christians, we are to live out our faith in such a way that our very lives speak to others, that God is big enough to help them with their troubles because He is helping us!
My concern with Bible prophecy today is that we are not providing solutions, positive direction and enough sound doctrine tagged into our prophecy updates and people are seeing so much terrifying news and events that they are being caught up in a barrage of fear and desperation. This by the way is exactly what Satan, the enemy of our souls wants, he wants believers living and walking in fear and at one each others throats.
The Bible tells us to resist the Devil and he will flee from you (James4:7-10). How do we resist you ask? The Bible defines exactly how:
James 4:8 - Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:10 - Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
My podcast today tries to address this issue of fear. As believers we serve a God that cares deeply for us. We all have days when we feel alone or inadequate, but most days I'm sure, we go about our lives trying to complete the work list that we have. As we live out our lives, Jesus Christ our Savior wants to be engaged in our life with us. The only way this happens is if we ask Him to be part of our lives. Yes the God of the universe waits on us to invite Him into our lives! Check the scripture out below:
Revelation 3:20: Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
You see? The King of The Universe wants to have a personal relationship with you, but it starts with you opening your hearts door. I would like to extend an invitation to you that you consider, if you have not already done so, invite The Lord Jesus into your life and begin your journey with Him. Time is running out and if you're reading this today it's no accident, so please respond!
